Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

Bumping an old thread

I'm overly cautious but i don't want to mess the car up as theres not so much as a squeak or rattle anywhere at the moment.

I've decided i deffo want to get this sound system sorted out in the new year..

I've emailed uplands to see what kinda price they'd be wanting to upgrade the sound system (looking for a guesstimate)... while im sure they'll charge heaven & earth, it'll be nice to get it done professionally & Not worry about ripping door panels off & things not going back the way they were before, also been checking forum & heard stock ones are riveted in and need drilling out / new holes to be drilled etc.

I'll leave a message here once i get a reply from them & see weather its worth doing or if i'll have to do it myself with a bit of blutack & a hammer.

In the mean time, has anyone else tackled there sound system themselves or know anymore info?

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

Yeah i would like to know, as I get some terrible ratles with my speakers, not all time just on certain songs.

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me what settings they have there EQ on, as atm I use rock and would like to try differnt settings.

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

Settings all on Flat or only +1 or 2 on the EQ's. This will stop any distortion.

If you need to find a good installer in your area give me a PM and ill put you onto somebody.

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

I have my EQ set to USER and bass on +2, Fader on Rear 2. seems to be ok for most songs but not all (dance etc is perfect but RNB etc not amazing)

the main issue i find with the install in the Punto Evo (with speaker package) is actually not the tiny sub (to my amazement) but actually the front speakers. this could be due to being so close to the fronts that the distortion is easy to hear? but anyways ill always be sitting in the front so thats where the money will go for me.

I would like to have maybe a replacement sub for the back as i think it is a little rattly but am unsure of the Sub size? it looks tiny!! (after always having a JL Audio 12" W6) in my old car. so think its probably like 10CM!??

anybody know the size specs for the sub? maybe there is another one we could plug in to the existing amp that can handle a little more. Also anybody know the size of the front speakers?? i have some 6.5" JL ZR650s from my last car but dont want to take the car apart to find out they wont fit.

any help appreciated!

Can anyone get hold of the wiring diagram for the headunit??

Or pics of identical spec cars one with optional sub one without and will get my dad to look at it as hes an auto electricion.

Then if we know how fiat do it we can work it out from there

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

I have fitted an Dension Adapter in my APE.
Gives me iPhone and USB (DOK) control (with steering wheel and everything) + BT that connects to the car's stereo.

It's a Dension GBL2AF8. Installation is easy, just plug it in and that's it.

Here is an ebay link for the adapter:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/360424592746...ht_4735wt_1063

On top of that you need to ad some sort of cable for the iDevice. They have several options, I picked this one:

Dension IPO5DC9.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/250905248712...ht_3175wt_1063

They also make some with built-in cradles.

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

Thanks for the help, I just ordered that one too. I should get it this week. How about the cable(s), are they going thru your glovebox or?

I was also thinking about those cradles, it would be nice to use my Iphone as a navigator.

Re: Anyone played with sound system yet?

I'll upload a picture soon.
Basically, it's coming out near the base of the left A pillar, where I have a generic suction mount for the phone. My car is LHD.
